The Argus issued two reports about this, and made great deal of the ownership of the kettle used. It was first claimed that it was the victim's kettle, but then The Argus claimed that the incident took place at the home of a friend of the victim, the victim having gone round to visit at some ungodly hour.

Why would she have taken her own kettle there? Did her attacker follow her there with a boiled kettle?

Thankfully, her injuries weren't severe, as she was able to go home from hospital within a few hours.

Let's hope the attacker receives an appropriate punishment then gets deported.
